Diversity And Inclusion In Sport
In this keynote, Ama reflects on the question of diversity from a number of perspectives – race, gender in sport, and the importance of understanding that people have many different layers. Her message is a simple one – judge people on the basis of what they say and do, not on pre-conceived ideas of what to expect.
